Superior performance based on unique material science

A non-woven, breathable structure that stands apart from other types of house wraps, Tyvek® HomeWrap® promotes drying in wall systems and helps insulation perform closer to its R-value.


DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap®

DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® is the original house wrap, incorporating unique material science that helps keep air and water out, while letting water vapor escape. As a result, it can contribute to improved building durability by helping to protect homes against damaging wind and rain that can penetrate the exterior cladding. Tyvek® HomeWrap® can also reduce home energy bills by controlling air flow and water intrusion, which helps insulation work better, allowing the HVAC system to work more efficiently. It’s a house wrap engineered to keep homes cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and dry all year round.
